At 4:57 p.m., Clenney called 911. According to the affidavit, she was heard on the call saying, “I’m so sorry, baby,” and a man in the background could be heard saying he couldn’t feel his arm and was dying.
(Meanwhile, neighbors called building security to report any disturbance, and security later called 911 also at 4:46 p.m.)
Kleiny told the police that Obomsele pushed her into the wall by the neck, then threw her to the floor. When she got up, she said, she grabbed a kitchen knife and threw it at him from at least 10 feet away, piercing his chest.
Noting that she eventually gave police “several inconsistent accounts” of the events, the arrest affidavit stated that Cleaney also reported to the police, “I don’t really know if that was ever justified.” Investigators also indicated that she did not have any injuries to indicate that she had been attacked.
